Humana donates $11.5M for racial inclusion efforts, rebuilding in Kentucky

Humana will donate $11.5 million to efforts focused on rebuilding, relief, equity and inclusion in Louisville, Ky., the health insurer said June 3.

"The mission of our company has taken on particular significance in our hometown of Louisville that is reeling from the devastating loss of Breonna Taylor, protests and ensuing tragedies. This is a community that is already suffering the impact of COVID-19. There is a lot of work and healing to do to rebuild physically and emotionally," Humana President and CEO Bruce Broussard said in a news release

Breonna Taylor was an emergency room technician who was shot and killed in her home by Louisville police March 13 during a search warrant.

As part of the donation, Humana is allocating $6.5 million to complete the Louisville Urban League's Sports and Learning Complex. The company will also contribute up to 160,000 employee volunteer hours to help "revitalize downtown Louisville."
